Times Have Changed

Tags: memories

I remember when people ate fried chicken
saying their amens while licking their hands
and not fingers in a box puffed up with botox

Granny had a new set of polished teeth
from Sears and Robuck and I had a slinky
two for one but her Harley had saddlebags  

Now Jello has lost its wiggle, made in Japan
by some Shogun in a lean cuisine   
and taste like crayons

Honey came from honey bear trees
just ask Winnie-the-Pooh
and not from condominium of combs

Catfish was served with hushpuppies
made from corn and not soybeans
but now the dogs have the mange

Dogs were named Fido and Pembrooke
and peed on cars and tree stumps
now they wear doggy Depends

The reverend is now preaching on TV
the gospel of Playboy and playing guitar
according to some boll weevil

Tattoos have become the rage until you age
with idols that can't talk the talk
or spell their names but they can rap

Now I have joined the army
but don't know my gender  
and granny still has her Harley
